This recipe came to be quite simply because I wanted a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. I wanted it, but I didn’t want the added sugar and dairy. So, I did what I do and created my own healthy version! This recipe turned out perfectly. The flavor is right-on!

You know I love a whole, natural foods energy bar or ball. Here are some of my now famous creations:

This recipe will be great for a mid-morning snack, to replace your chocolate orange cravings or a great snack for the kids. This is a must-make recipe.

This recipe is raw, gluten-free, vegan, no-bake, and 5 minute prep.

Terry’s Chocolate Orange Larabars

Makes 8-10 Bars


  • 1 Cup Cashews
  • 1 Cup Pitted Dates
  • 1/4 Cup Ground Flax
  • Juice of 1 Orange
  • Zest of 1/2 Orange
  • 2 Tbsp Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 3-4 Packets Stevia (This is optional – it just makes it sweeter like a chocolate bar but you certainly don’t need it. You can also use Agave, Honey or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Protein Option – You are free to add 2 scoops of protein powder to this recipe. If you do this you may want to add 3-4 tbsp of water.

Tip – If your dates are dry or you do not have a high-powdered food processor soaking your dates in water overnight will soften them and make it easier on your machine.


  1. Place all ingredients into your food processor and blend until larabar consistency (not completely smooth).
  2. Place ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour (this is a step I do because it makes the mixture less sticky to work with).
  3. Remove from refrigerator and place dough on a cutting board.
  4. Taking a piece of saran wrap press dough down and out until you reach larabar thickness.
  5. Using a knife cut bars into larabar-sized serving.
  6. Wrap each individual bar in saran warp for quick-to-grab snacks.
  7. Store in the refrigerator.
  8. Enjoy!
